“Funnel clouds are being observed this evening. (They) are associated with weak circulations around showers that are developing in a humid and unstable airmass,” the weather service said around 8 p.m. Thursday. No damage has been reported since the funnel clouds are remaining above the ground.”

Meteorologists said the chance for these ominous cloud formations should greatly reduce after sunset when the temperatures lower and the current round of showers leave the area.

Forecasters are predicting a slight chance of additional showers and patchy fog Thursday overnight into Friday morning, with a low of 68 degrees. Friday calls for a slight chance of showers in the morning, with increasing chances of thunderstorms in the afternoon. High of 86 degrees.

The weekend is looking good with mostly sunny skies Saturday and a slight chance of thunderstorms on Sunday, both days highs in the mid- to upper-80s.
